DMC: "Blank" by Robyn Hood Black





BLANK


Line after line in invisible ink –
Couplets come clean with invisible think.

Nothing much needed for blank verse this way –
a nay-scheming, day-dreaming
do-nothing
day

  3. I am a master at invisible think... or maybe it's actually saturated think. The results are similar on the do-nothingness scale, no? Love this perfect little nugget of a nothing poem, Robyn.

  4. Thanks so much, Michelle - always an honor to share some space on your blog, even if it's for "nothing"....
    And many thanks, Linda M, Diane, Matt, Linda B, and Tabatha! You all spur me on and make me smile, and that's something for sure.
